Hops & Crops Homebrew Competition

The Neighborhood Farm Initiative welcomes entries for its Fifth Annual Hops 'n' Crops Local Brew Competition.  All proceeds will benefit the Neighborhood Farm Initiative, a DC-­based nonprofit with a focus on residential and small­scale food production in Washington, DC.  Any fermented beverage may be submitted, including but not limited to beer, mead, and kombucha.  Brewers are asked to submit one case (24 bottles) so that attendees can taste the full variety of submissions.  Brewers can join the competition and pay the $5 fee here

Judging will take place Sunday, June 14 at DC Reynolds (3628 Georgia Ave NW, Washington, DC 20010) and is open to the public.  The event kicks off at 4 p.m. with a beer tasting, followed by a sampling of some of NFI’s locally grown produce.  Prizes will be awarded for Best Brew, Best Use of a Local Ingredient, Most Creative, and more.  Winners will be announced shortly before 7 p.m., after which DC Reynolds will remain open for guests to mix & mingle.   Full contest rules are available on NFI’s website.  Please contact hopsNcrops.NFI@gmail.com with any questions.
